SGSSS Supervisor-led SDS and Open Collaborative Studentship Competitions
Opens 31 Aug 2021 09:00 (GMT)
Deadline 29 Oct 2021 12:00 (GMT)
Description

This application program is for supervisors looking to apply for ESRC studentship funding via our two collaborative competitions, the SDS Collaborative Competition and the Open Collaborative Competition

Each supervisor may submit only one application to each competition. Please note, this applies to any application where you are named as supervisor, not just first supervisor applications.

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) Collaborative Competition

SDS and the SGSSS will support up to four new PhD studentships this competition round, starting in the 2022/23 academic year. Their research will provide new knowledge and insights to help advance the understanding of key skills issues from a Scottish perspective.

The purpose of the SDS-SGSSS PhD scheme is to engage with the academic community to support the production of new, high-quality research focused on the Scottish labour market. The scheme supports supervisor-led applications, and is designed to:

  • Contribute to the development of a cadre of high-quality academic researchers with a deep knowledge of the Scottish skills landscape
  • Provide SDS with access to high-quality academic research around topics of longer-term interest
  • Increase the range and scope of SDS engagement with academic experts in support of skills policy

The lead supervisor must be a member of a HEI in Scotland that is accredited to hold studentships within their disciplinary pathway, and must have undergone supervisor training within their institution within the last 5 years.

Second supervisors may work within any of the SGSSS 16 partner HEIs. We encourage applicants to consider co-supervision with different universities across our network where this is beneficial to the studentship. You can find full information about the SGSSS partner universities online here.

Each year SDS invite proposals based on specific research topics; the 2021/22 topics are:

  1. Labour market outcomes and pathways for care experienced young people
  2. The economic benefits of work-based learning and Foundation Apprenticeships
  3. Poverty, social disadvantage and social mobility in Scotland’s skills landscape 
  4. Transformative skills and implications for skills development

Please ensure you have read the competition guidance carefully before you apply, as well as to access the application form.

Open Collaborative Studentship Competition 2021/22

In this competition, ‘Collaborative’ is defined broadly to mean a collaboration between a named academic and a non-academic partner in the public, private and third sectors. Approx. 14 awards will be made this competition round, to start in the 2022/23 academic year.

Applicants should pay particular attention to the expected financial contributions from collaborative partners and the requirements for student recruitment set out in the guidance.

The lead supervisor must be a member of an institution within Scotland that is accredited to hold studentships within their disciplinary pathway, and must have undergone supervisor training within their institution within the last 5 years.

Second supervisors may work within any of the SGSSS 16 partner HEIs. We encourage applicants to consider co-supervision with different universities across our network where this is beneficial to the studentship. You can find full information about the SGSSS partner universities online here.
